In addition to the screenshots, we can also record the Xiaomi smartphone's screen as a video. We can find the function via the status bar in the quick settings. After activation, we get a small control unit on the screen, which fades after about 2 seconds and remains only very slightly visible. This can be used to stop the recording.
